Looking for something to do this Saturday, but are low on funds, look no further than L.A.’s own La Brea Tar Pits. The tar Pits will be host to the 11the annual TARFEST.
The event is a free music and art festival for music lovers of all ages. And, for being free, TARFEST has an impeccable lineup. Indie-rock bands Saint Motel, Nightmare Air, Echosmith, Irontom and Tapioca and the Flea are all scheduled to perform. In between the music you can also check out live artist paintings done by Greg “CRAOLA” Simkins, AXIS and William Wray. For a slightly more unique art experience you can see sculptures done by artist David O. Johnson.
Of course no festival is complete without good libations and random activities to pass the time. TARFEST will include a Lagunitas Biergarten, California Wine Bar, Gourmet Food Trucks, The Poem Store, Japanese Foundation Los Angeles tent with Calligraphy, Origami and Samurai Photos, interactive arts activities with the Petersen Automotive Museum, among other vendors and activities for the whole family.
Excavating future culture on The Miracle Mile, the TARFEST festival unites the local community in celebration of the city’s blossoming music and arts scene by showcasing some of the most talented up-and-coming bands and artists. In past years, TARFEST has brought together thousands of Angelenos with performances from bands like Blondefire, The Steelwells, Helena, Everest among others.
You do not know what great artists you’ll be missing out on if you miss this event. The festival will go from 2-8pm on Saturday. Make sure you check it out.
